The 18-year-old Coady also competed individually in the kumite 84 kilogram-and-under class and while he did not medal there, his two losses in the division came against the eventual gold- and bronze-medal winners.

Earlier this spring, Coady was seeded as the top-ranked athlete in Karate Canada’s junior (under-21) kumite listing.
